Have you heard? The great minds at Apple have plans to put out an update of the MacBook Pro this year. It’s only been a year since the last update, but fans are already eager to see what the latest version will be like. If you’re already brimming with excitement, here are what the rumors are saying about the impending release:
The analyst Ming-Chi Kuo released a research note about Apple’s 2019 products, including talk of the 2019 MacBook Pro. The note mentioned a brand-new design, letting users know that a big makeover could be in store for their beloved laptops.
Kuo has made many correct predictions about Apple releases in the past, including information about the iPhone 4, the iPhone SE and the Apple Watch Series 2. With that kind of success rate, this prediction should be given a lot of weight.
Another exciting reveal is that the company may have a 16-inch MacBook Pro in the works. This upgrade would be the biggest size option since the 17-inch MacBook Pro, which was discontinued in 2012. After a long hiatus, Apple could be hoping for users to warm up to a larger screen once again.
The pros at Tech Radar expect for the release date to be further down the line, but most likely during the summer. A summer launch would follow the same pattern as previous versions. When you look at the timeline of Apple products, the MacBook upgrades tend to come out during that season — the 2018 versions were released in July and the 2017 versions were released in June. It’s a safe bet that the upgrade will be out in a matter of months.
If you can’t afford to get yourself a new laptop, don’t worry. You already paid the luxury prices for a MacBook — take your time with it and get your money’s worth. To avoid a serious case of FOMO, you can give your MacBook a facelift and make it look like you just took it straight out of its pristine white box.
A slick MacBook skin will cover up any signs of wear and tear that the device has gone through. It will hide scuff marks, scrapes, micro scratches and smears that don’t seem to come off with a microfiber cloth. Instead, you’ll have a smooth, protective coating in an eye-catching design. Choose unique patterns like zebra wood, black dragon scale, orange carbon fiber or concrete.
Considering the cost of a new MacBook, you’ll find that upgrading your older model with a cool, protective skin is a wise financial decision. Just try not to hang around the Apple store on the official release date. The temptation to go into debt over an update could be overwhelming.
So far, this is what the word on the street is about the 2019 MacBook. Keep your ear to the ground for more updates. Scour the internet for more juicy information. More details are bound to come out as the release date draws closer and closer. Don’t let the anticipation get to you. The summer will be here before you know it.
